Woodwork for Inventor is furniture design software that is fully integrated into Autodesk Inventor. When combined Autodesk Inventor and Woodwork for Inventor become a very powerful tool for furniture designers.
I can choose many ways to build complicated model.
I can use skeleton modelling technique or just use mates, or both hybrid technique.
User friendly interface, you will see all action on screen, visually you can see realistic model or wireframe. you can render your product and use FEA for some critical parts without exporting 3d model some other software.
What do you dislike?
Building own hardware Library is time consuming
even if you get downloadable model from Hafele you need to deal with data translation to own language
and chose what information goes to part nr , and what goes Description.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Invetntor allows to create very complicated 3D models for bended pipes , freeform bodys, soft furniture.
You can make movable assemblysand generate drawings from these models
In same time you can create retangular parts but this is simple solid is without material information.
Woowork for inventor divides this solid in 6 faces and there is good tools to give material information for this 6 faces. and you can chose grain direction for that. So when you make BOM then you exactly know how many meters you need Edgeband and how many m2 you need veneer.
